Forecasts

Bristol De Mai (7/4), American (9/2), The Last Samuri (9/2), Definitly Red (7/1), Singlefarmpayment (15/2), Tea For Two (17/2), Perfect Candidate (33/1), Theatre Guide (33/1)

Verdict

BRISTOL DE MAI was unsuited by the pace at which the King George was run at last time out but he will take some beating against these rivals, particularly if there's any overnight rain. The Last Samuri is worth giving a chance to getting weight from the majority of the field while Definitly Red was impressive last time out in Grade 2 company and there's a suspicion we are yet to see the best of him
  1. Bristol De Mai
  2. The Last Samuri
  3. Definitly Red
